Christian Roth (born January 6, 1959 in Hanover, Germany) is a designer of luxury spectacles. In 1980, Roth started his career in New York as an assistant to the late fashion photographer Rico Puhlmann. In 1978, he met French-born Eric Domege, who was studying marketing at the Academie Commerciale Internationale (A.C.I.) at the time, in Paris. The pair met again in New York in 1983, and in 1984 they founded Optical Affairs. In 2002, the pair was honored by the art world with the inclusion of their designs from the 1980s and 1990s in the "Taking Eyeglasses Seriously" exhibition at the Triennale di Milano. From 2000 to 2004, Roth and Domege collaborated with designer Michael Kors on his eyewear collections. The pair has also worked with Karl Lagerfeld on his line of fashion eyewear from 2007 to 2011.
